Note this is a picture of the 1920 Swiss Olympic hockey team. The players are wearing shorts! The goalie, Rene Savoie, is wearing a shirt and tie and a sweater!
I got this photo from Eric Zweig's book Long Shot: How The Winnipeg Falcons Won The First Olympic Gold Medal. Check out the link. I reviewed it over at Hockey Book Reviews.com
In fact, I have a whole slew of new reviews on older titles. I recently spent three days at beautiful Kleanza Creek Provincial Park in northwestern British Columbia, armed with lots of firewood, bug spray and hockey books. Roughing it in my tent, Canadian style!
I have 6 other new reviews up, including:
What It Means To Be A Red Wing
A Season Of Loss: The Dan Snyder And Dany Heatley Story
Between The Lines
Doug: The Doug Harvey Story
The Montreal Maroons
Game Of My Life: New York Rangers
